Harry in action.

MRC you are now on my #%%&*%$## list. Now I HAVE to get one.  It was always on my short list not it just jumped to #1. As to price. I will do what I usually do when the 'boss' asks the price. I just cut the price in half and lie. ;) ;)

p.s. the black guy with the shotgun is the same actor in a earlier 'Harry' movie. He was the robber that Clint said to " Did I fire 5 or 6? Do you feel lucky."

He also played the pimp in Magnum Force, at least he got to play a good guy in one movie :)

That's right. He drove the big Eldo with the fur interior. He is one of those actors that you recognize but really don't know who he is.

One of the guys who received his Auto Mag posted this picture.  I'm really wanting mine to get here soon.

I'm tempted to buy one. Does one deal direct with the mfg. or thru a ffl.? it is nice to see a posting about such a high quality firearm.
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

Production is very very limited.  You deal direct with the company and you have to be on their wait list.  They email when they have an opening in production and you take it or leave it then.

Here is their website, it should explain things there or you could call or email them.  They will be at SHOT this week.

Look them over closely Norm, the AMP's aren't for everyone.

They are big and noisy and not a gun to shoot indoors if that is what you are limited to.  They have been a handloading project for most of their life but the new owners have SBR out of Georgia selling new ammo for $50 a box and it has been getting good reviews.

I have read reviews from two owners so far and they have been impressed with the quality and the functioning.  I was told by Patrick that mine would ship last week but I have not heard anything.  Getting ready for SHOT could have slowed things up.

My favorite gun to shoot is a Colt 8" Anaconda .44 magnum. I love guns with big booms! Thanks for the info.

I have never shot an Anaconda but I have owned and shot both 6" and 8 3/8" Smith 629's and the Auto Mags are easier to shoot with full power loads.

The advantage of a revolver is you can download to get a more user friendly load.  The AMP's are recoil operated and one can only go so low and still get 100% functioning.
